Seitan Pot Roast

This is delicious stuff! Hard to believe that its not chuck roast. I started with my basic seitan recipe:


1 1/2 cups vital wheat gluten

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1 -2 teaspoon pepper

2 teaspoons garlic powder

3/4 cup water

4 tablespoons tomato paste

1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. In a large mixing bowl mix dry ingredients. Mix the rest of the ingredients (liquid ingredients) in a smaller mixing bowl. Whisk well until mixed.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix well, then knead for a minute or two. it doesn’t need long.
  4. Place in a well oiled dutch oven. Pour 4 cups of vegetable broth and 3 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce over the seitan.
  5. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 325 degrees.
  6. Turn the seitan and cover. Continue to bake for another 1 1/2 hours.
  7. Add 4-5 quartered red skin potatoes, 3-4 sliced carrots, and a whole sliced onion. Cover and continue to bake for 1 1/2 more hours.
